What was your favorite class at Stern?

The Craft and Commerce of Cinema: Cannes Film Festival is an application-based, faculty-led travel course taught by Professor Lieberman. The course covered all aspects of the film industry and culminated in attendance at the Cannes Film Festival. It was a unique and special educational experience and one of many things that really set Stern apart among business schools.

What is your fondest memory at Stern?

During my first year at Stern, the Association of Hispanic and Black Business Students (AHBBS) planned a spring break trek to Morocco. We spent 10 days traveling throughout the country, including an overnight in the desert. On our many stops along the way, we were exposed to so many aspects of Moroccan culture and made memories with classmates that will last a lifetime.

How has your Stern education helped with your career development?

Stern opened my eyes to new professional possibilities and career opportunities were suddenly open to me that never would have been prior to business school. My Stern education helped me develop my leadership skills, broadened my understanding of business concepts, and enabled me to apply critical thinking to all sorts of challenges. I wouldn't have my career if I hadn't attended Stern and it was, without a doubt, one of the best life decisions I have made.
